Timberlake is nominated for his hit song, "Can't Stop The Feeling," which was featured in the animated movie, Trolls. He co-wrote the song with Max Martin and Karl Johan Schuster.
Timberlake revealed that he woke up Tuesday morning to Jessica Biel telling him he'd been nominated for an Oscar. “I was recovering from a late night at the studio so when I woke up there was a whirlwind of emails and texts, but my wife broke the news to me which was even sweeter,” Timberlake told Deadline. Aww!
Timberlake went on to explain how grateful he was for his Oscar nomination. “We were just giddy this morning, and I’m still like in a tornado. I’m just really honored and grateful they recognized the song. I’ve honestly been walking around today thinking, ‘Did that happen?’ Obviously it was a great year for Max and Johan and myself with the success of the song. I’m having a pinch-yourself moment.”
Justin Timberlake is no stranger to awards. He's already earned 9 Grammys for his music and 4 Emmys for his appearances on SNL. But hey an Oscar nomination's an Oscar nomination. Still pretty exciting.
